Absolute scene after full time whistle. Kwon tries an atrocious long range hit that gets deflected out but Anthony Taylor blows the final whistle.

Corner for Korea in the dying minutes of the match. One last chance as Young Gwon takes it but it is badly placed. Cleared easily by the defense

Korea has been absolutely lethal in the last 10 minutes or so, constantly exploiting the defense. Gue Sung comes close to scoring yet again but the ball goes just wide. This is pure agony

64’

Looks like In Beom is in serious pain. He gets hit on his head as he challenged for the ball with Inaki Williams. Stretcher came in but the nuumber 6 walked off the pitch. Hope its not a serious injury. Korea carries on with 10 men

61’

KOREAAA!!!!!! THE COMEBACK IS REAL!! How about that! GUE SUNG IT IS!! A replication of the first goal as the number 9 gets a delightful cross from Jin Su and the former finishes things off

51’

Jin su requires medical attention as he hurt his lips while going for a tackle. He is back in action rather quickly

50’

Lamptey goes for glory but fails. He was right at the edge of the penalty box, moved across a couple of defenders and lashed out a curling effort but it goes brushing past the post. An attempt worth taken

Second half begins

South Korea has a mountain to climb in 45 minutes. A win would’ve placed them at the top of Group H but things look bleak for Son’s side

45’ Substitution for South Korea

Woo Yeong OUT, Sang ho IN

HALF-TIME

Contrasting results for both the sides. Korea dominated in the initial minutes. But it was Ghana which took the lead as Salisu scored that surprised Son’s side. To add insult to injury Kudus doubled Ghana’s lead 10 minutes from half-time. Jordan Ayew has been the player of the half as he was involved in both the goals. The Crystal Palace forward made all the difference in the 45 minutes that has passed.

45+2’

Corner for Ghana as Woo Yung is forced to put the ball away from an attacking Inaki Williams. Jordan Ayew takes it but it doesn’t trouble the defense. Tidy clearance

43’

Korea gets a throw as Amartey cuts Son on the left and the ball eventually goes out.

42’

Woo Yung is down and in agony. Replay shows he collided with his teammate In Beom while fighting for the ball from Andre Ayew. But he is quickly gets back on his feet

38’

Dangerous counter from Korea as Chong lobs it to Son who is right at the edge of the box. The latter is markd by 2 defenders and eventually picks Chong. He lets one fly that brushes past the crossbar. The line assistant finally raises the flag indicating Son was offside

34’

KUDUUSSSSSSS!!!! Jordan Ayew is the provider yet again!!! What a passage of play from Ghana. Ayew recieves the ball on the left and whips out a long cross into the Korean box and finds a jumping Kudus who heads home.

Did you know?

Ghana is winless in its past five international matches (D2 L3). This might well be the turning point for the Black Stars.

30’

After dominating majority of the 30 minutes, Korea is suddenly in the back foot as it conceded a goal. Ghana meanwhile has started pressing for balls and that means danger for Son’s side.

26’ YELLOW CARD

Jung Woo Yung is booked for intentionally pushing Kudus down and Ghana gets a free kick

23’

GHANA IN FRONTTT!!!!!! MOHAMMED SALISU PUTS HIS NATION IN FRONT!! A quality delivery from Jordan Ayew. Korea fails to clear it and Salisu capitalises and taps the ball into the right corner as Seung gyu can only look

Seventh corner for Korea in just under 20 minutes!! The skipper it is yet again who takes the kick but it is the same result. Lamptey clears it

17’

Korea right back at it. Son runs through the Ghana half before finding Chang-hoon on the right. He in turn whips a short cross in an attempt to find Jin su, who recieves it and shoots but the ball is deflected to a corner for Korea. Son takes it as Chong heads it but it takes a deflection for yet another corner

14’

Finally, something to cheer for the Ghana fans. An attack brews on the left as Jordan Ayew initiates it. He passes the ball to Williams but is dispossessed by Moon-Hwan

12’

Fifth corner for Korea and the captain takes it yet again. Standard set piece routine but his high pass is miscued yet again. Ghana clears it without trouble

11’

Corner again for Korea as Son on the left too the ball deep but Partey kicks it wide. Son himself takes it. A weak cross and it is easily cleared

8’

Corner for Korea and Son takes it. He whips in a well placed cross as Min Jae heads it but Zigi blocks it. The ball stays inside the penalty box but Ghana clears it after a bit of a struggle

6’

Free kick for Korea as Son is tirpped down by Leamptey. Set piece situation in a dangerous position as Son takes the kick. He decides to make a short pass In Beom and he puts in a lob ball into the penalty box. Clever ball but an even better clearance from the Ghana defense

4’

Amartey does well as a dangerous counter was on by Korea. Chan-hoon led the attack on the left as he ran deep into the Ghana half on the right and finally whips a cross. Gue Sung is in the middle but is unable to finish as he is marked perfectly by three defenders. Amartey eventually clears the ball away

2’

Jin su comes up with a searching through ball on the left flank but it zooms through all the Korean players and Salisu intercepts to pass it to Ati Zigi.

KICK-OFF!!

PREVIEW

South Korea were proud of their effort in the stalemate with Uruguay in their World Cup opener but would need to find the much-needed clinical edge when they face Ghana in Monday’s game, where both teams will be desperate for victory.

Playing at its 11th World Cup, South Korea began its campaign with a gritty 0-0 draw with Uruguay, putting on a lively display.

However, even though they created opportunities in attack, the ability to finish off chances was missing as the Asian side had no shots on target.

South Korea tend to over-rely on attacking midfielder and captain Son Heung-min , who is slowly re-adapting after a recent facial surgery and had little impact in their opening match of the tournament.

Head coach Paulo Bento was happy with the aggression showed by the team against the experienced Uruguayans and expects to see the same in their upcoming games -- against Ghana on Monday and Portugal four days later.

The Koreans are tied with Uruguay on one point in Group H, which Portugal lead after beating Ghana 3-2.

For Monday’s game at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan, Bento will be sweating over the fitness of defender Kim Min-jae, who was struggling after picking up a knock in their opening game.

UNDER PRESSURE

Ghana, the first African team to score at the global showpiece event in Qatar, was disappointed to suffer defeat at the first hurdle but could gain confidence from its performance against Portugal in the second half.

Ghana reached the World Cup quarter-finals in 2010 but should it suffer defeat against South Korea, it risks getting knocked out in the first round.

After a miserable showing at the Cup of Nations this year, where it was dumped out in the group stage with only one point, Ghana is hoping for a brighter run in Qatar.

“We have to win now and we are under pressure but then so are they,” Ghana coach Otto Addo said of South Korea.

Captain Andre Ayew has belief in his team, saying they always come out of difficult situations.

“We need to stay calm, relax and increase our performance. We need to try and score more and concede less,” the 32-year-old said.
